Day 4 – Down Town Disney and Hollywood Studios – 4/20

Down Town Disney has always been a full day destination for us, and we normally do it near the end of the trip to get our big shopping done. However, this trip, I don’t think we are going to need that much shopping time. We normally end up just looking mostly, as we stick to the “buy it when you see it” rule for the most part.
Once we get our shopping out of the way (and with enough time to have it shipped back to the resort! Score for not going at the end of the trip) we will head over to Hollywood Studios. We have a 5:50 reservation at Sci-Fi that I am super excited for! We went back in 2011 and had a ball!


Both Josh and I have wanted to go back, but we didn’t even hit the studios in 2012, so this is the first chance we have had.

After dinner, the plan is to grab a FastPass for Starwars, and then go to see Fantasmic. If we can get a few other things done, that would be great, but the big stress is to eat, and see the show! We do have a full day later in the week at the Studios to get some other things done if needed.

Wow... you take your pennies seriously!

I can't believe there are too many you don't have. That's a lot of pennies.

I'm just going to go out on a limb here, but I'm guessing that you're probably a little bit excited about one of the new rides in Fantasyland.

Poor Josh...


Well, at least there's going to be some time for Sci Fi, Fantasmic and Star Wars in the evening, so the day won't be a total loss.

He is tough. And he enjoys Disney stuff shopping too!

Um, okay when you said your penny collection, I was thinking like 10-20...Boy was I wrong

That is really impressive! Did you make that spreadsheet yourself or did you download it somewhere? Also, is there a map for all the penny machines? Very cool!

And sooo many cool pins!

I don't do things less than 100% I made the spreadsheet. They printed me a list, there might have been a map, but I don't remember.....

Apparently you do less than 100% if you don't have them all yet.


I think I've seen a map online that lists all the pennies and where they can be found somewhere before. I looked at it because my sisters and I used to collect them when we were little, but I apparently didn't care enough at the time to want to restart the collection. I don't even remember where it was that I saw it.

Day 5 - Epcot - 4/21

This is going to be our first hopping day ever. We are going to spend the morning/early afternoon in Epcot, eating at the booths and just generally wandering around! We had had a lunch reservation at Via Napoli, but I cancelled it when they started releasing the information about the food booths. We figure we will have more fun snacking around the world!

Then for the evening we are going to hop over to the Magic Kingdom to see Main St. Electrical Parade. We have never been to Casey's so I figured we might try that for dinner.

Day 6 - Magic Kingdom - 4/22

Our last day in the Magic Kingdom But not our last day!!

This day will be mostly hitting our favorites again, and seeing about getting into Be Our Guest for lunch. We have dinner reservations at 'Ohana, which we have never done! We did breakfast there last trip and had a blast though! I keep reading such amazing things about dinner there that I can hardly wait!


We have decided to join a photopass share, and I paid the other day, so I am excited to see the return of Josh's surprise face! Here is one of my favorites from the past



We also have discovered that Lucky is allergic to us going to Disney! He saw us pull out the suitcases, and his nerves made him so sick we ended up at the vet getting X-Rays because we all thought (vet included) it might have been an obstruction!

I can't imagine going to the parks and not hopping. The flexibility is great. I'm sure you'll love it.

Especially going from experiencing F&W to an evening in MK. It's fun to be able to experience the best that 2 parks have to offer in one day.

But you're still wrong for cancelling Via Napoli.

Via Napoli is VERY good! You will have to put it on your list for next time. Their desserts are some of my favorite anywhere.

First hopping day?! I remember researching for my very first WDW trip in 2008 and debating between PH's and one day, one park tickets. Their is a significant price difference but we didn't want to be 'stuck' at one park in case we didn't like it. Now it's a MUST and we will always work it in to our budget now.

I haven't been to Casey's either and I hear it's good

Did you have to pay a lot for the photopass share?

Oh gosh hope he's okay!
